V-Discs 400-499

by WA4CZD

Published 1945


During WWII the government produced and distributed 78 RPM "Victory Discs," or V-Discs, to US troops all over the world. The records were to be destroyed after the war but many of them survived. :)

A lot of the V-Disc material was taken from radio programs like Command Performance; you can find out more in the book V-Discs: A History and Discography by Richard Sears.

Any error or typo is mine. :)

Since the gov't produced and distributed these records they are public domain but if you intend to make $ or otherwise profit from these files, please consider making a donation to a veteran's charity of your choice. Thanks. :)

Here's the links to the entire set of V-Discs that I've uploaded to Archive.Org:
